Kids to Love Founder and CEO Lee Marshall was the featured speaker at the 2017 Madison Chamber of Commerce Small Business Awards.
Marshall applauded the nominees for their work, and encouraged them to continue toward their goals and dreams regardless of whether they took home a trophy.
Marshall recalled the year (2015) Kids to Love was nominated but did not win, sharing with the crowd that her motivation to serve foster children and make a positive impact on the community is not dependent on accolades and recognition.
In 2016, Marshall received two awards from the Chamber: Community Servant of the Year and Non-profit Organization of the Year.
In addition to being the featured speaker, Marshall presented the two awards which she had previously won to the 2017 finalists and winners.
